MTV Awards 2023: Winners List

MTV Awards 2023:A mishmash of celebrities was honored with golden popcorn statuettes on Sunday, following a wacky week that was full of production adjustments for the MTV Movie & TV Awards due to the ongoing strike by Hollywood screenwriters.

The critically acclaimed picture “Top Gun: Maverick” has been added to the list of television programs “Stranger Things,” “The Last of Us,” “The White Lotus,” and “Wednesday” that have received the most nominations for their scripted content. The reality television programs “Jersey Shore Family Vacation,” “RuPaul’s Drag Race,” “The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills,” and “Vanderpump Rules” led the pack in terms of the number of nominations they received in the unscripted categories. The Comic Genius Award was given to Jennifer Coolidge, and the award for the best musical moment was given to Purple Hearts for their performance of “Come Back Home.”

Drew Barrymore is a supporter of the ongoing writers’ strike, and on Thursday she revealed that she will not be hosting the annual ceremony as a result of her participation in the strike. Barrymore was the one who was meant to host the event in the first place. Even though some of Barrymore’s segments had already been recorded before the strike began, the event went ahead without a formal presenter. In a statement, Barrymore expressed her intention to resume her role as presenter of the show in 2024.

Executive producer Bruce Gillmer told CNN that the MTV Movie & TV Awards were “pivoting away from a live event” and airing a taped version of the ceremony on Sunday Because WGA strikers planned to picket the event’s filming location at the Santa Monica Barker Hangar.
